The Climate-proof Together platform is a network for and of professional “Climate Workers” who are engaged in rendering the Netherlands resilient against climate change. Our efforts are focused on waterlogging, heat, drought, and urban flooding. By compiling practical experience and sharing knowledge, we are devising more efficient and faster solutions, which saves us from having to reinvent the wheel time and again. The Climate-proof Together team constitutes the foundation of the network; it is working on the expansion of, the commitment to, and the activities within the network.
